Do you know who was the first choice for KGF?

Some movie characters become iconic thanks in large part to the actors who bring them to life, and it’s often difficult to imagine anyone else in the role after that. But some actors miss such roles because of other commitments, and some just don’t accept the offer. A few actors regret turning down a project. One such role which brought wide laurels to actor Yash is the role of Rocky Bhai from KGF.

Not everyone know that Yash was not the first choice for the role. Director Prashant Neel was hoping to cast Bollywood star hero Hrithik Roshan for the role and tried to meet him. But, he couldn’t get the chance to meet Hrithik Roshan and then opted Yash for the role.

Even director SS Rajamouli tried hard to rope Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham for the roles of Baahubali and Bhallaladeva for Baahubali movie.
